I visited the Sampan with a group of friends and found it to be a very clean, spacious and comfortable restaurant. The service was first rate. The food was very good but not quite as good as the best Indian restaurants I have visited - new standards have been set by some recently. Overall though I would certainly recommend the... More

Nice setting inside, friendly staff who are helpful with menu choice. Be prepared to wait as food does take time to arrive. Portion sizes tend to be small but tasty.

I have now ordered take away 3 times from Sampam and have come to the same conclusion. It is VERY!!!!! expensive and the level of quality and quantity do not warrant it. You can often wait nearly an hour. The staff are unfriendly and really must see the place way above the level that it is. We have tasted much... More

Oddly enough this is the first time I've been in this restaurant, but it certainly won't be the last. My partner took me there for my birthday and I was delighted, as was he with the bill. We were there, early on a Monday night, so had a chance to look round at the beautiful decoration. We will certainly be... More

This is by far the best indian restaurant in the area. Lovely interior and very pleasant staff. The food has consistently been fab regardless of whether we were dining in the restaurant or taking away. Not the cheapest but by far the tastiest and definitely value for money.

Ordered food from the take away, was told an hour, but took at least another half an hour, but they cook from fresh and you can taste that in the food, it was one of the best take away meals I have ever tasted

This review is an old one of ours from an account that we can no longer access. Visited in August 2013. We are great fans of Indian cuisine and go to our locals often. We decided to try this restaurant out and were more than impressed! The food was AMAZING and the service was flawless. Prices are very reasonable and... More

After reading all the bad reviews I decided not to eat at Sampan. However, after walking around Blairgowrie and very little choice on a Monday night we decided to take a chance. What a treat. Lovely attentive service, food arrived well on time and was delicious. This place can compete with any of the curry places we have eaten across... More

Only go there if you have a lot of time. When we visited there was only one other table of four and us (2 people). Still our food arrived 30 mins after we had placed the order. We were told that it'll take time but no reason as to why was given. Unfortunately, the wait was not worth it. The... More

A reasonable meal and well priced but oh so slow, eight of us sat down at 18:50 ish and our main courses arrived an hour and fifty minutes later.
